In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the George Walter Vincent Smith Museum, James Callahan will delve into the history and context of the collecting interests of the Smiths. Together we will explore the people of Japan beginning with Hideyoshi in 1537, leading to the establishment and later collapse of the Shogunate in 1868. We will also discuss the flourishing of the arts during the Meiji period (1868-1912) while exploring objects in the museum associated with this period.
Presented by James Callahan, Director of Asian Art at Tremont Auctions, Sudbury, Massachusetts, and Antiques Roadshow appraiser
